The home of the jaguar is being clear-cut. Take action now.
These big cats are losing key habitat to deforestation. The jaguar needs your voice.
The Imperiled Jaguar
Jaguars are on the decline — fewer than 15,000 remain in the wild.1
And right now, the tropical forests they call home are being destroyed. We’ve lost the equivalent of 40 football fields of tropical forests every minute of every day for the past two years.2
Jaguars are intricately spotted and uniquely elegant creatures. They roam miles and miles into tropical forests, gracing the planet with their prowling beauty.
But these creatures are in decline — on the brink of being threatened with extinction.3
Why are jaguars and other rare and threatened species losing their home? Well, in part it’s so some of the world’s largest agricultural commodities companies can trade and sell palm oil and soybeans.
To save jaguars and other threatened species, we must protect their home — the world’s tropical forests.
That’s why we’re calling on one of the world’s largest agricultural companies based right here in the U.S., Cargill, to commit to zero deforestation in all of their supply chains by 2023.
How You Can Help
We can’t allow the drive for companies to produce more soybeans and palm oil — for use in animal feed and our everyday products — to destroy vitally important tropical forests.
So we’re taking action — calling on U.S.-based Cargill to end deforestation in all of its supply chains, and fast.
